Take this giant vintage ball of string which I bought for £1, which makes a pin/brooch stand. It's free standing and I just stab the pins straight in which is strangely satisfying. I imagine it must have come from some industrial or factory setting which is what first drew me to it. I just LOVE factories: the scale, the efficiency, the repetition, the automation, oh LORDY!

Then there is a more traditional earring organiser in a cheap black plastic design. It seems that a few years ago a whole bunch of copies of an Anna Sui design came out in black plastic including combs, mirrors, make-up cases and boxes, and this is one such item. Small earrings and studs are so easy to lose it really is important to keep them organised.
